Instant Oatmeal

This is a great recipe for instant oatmeal. It is so easy for a quick, hot breakfast. The boys love it and can make it themselves.

Take one cup quick oats and blend on high in a blender or food processor until powdery. Mix with 2 cups of plain quick oats and 1 tsp salt.

Add any one or more of the following to make flavored oatmeal:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 - 1 cup dried fruit
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts

Pour desired amount into a bowl. Add boiling water until it is the desired consistency.
from left to right: raisin & spice, cinnamon & spice, apples & cinnamon

  1. Found it! Yay! I'm excited to make this for the kids and I. (Derek dislikes oatmeal). I'm gonna try something other than brown sugar so that I can have it tomorrow! YUM! Thanks Carrie! Happy New Year!
